Robert Nance, a Sacramento dentist, sailed his Newport 30 II, Water-pik, into first overall in this year's Pacific Cup race to Hawaii. Water-pik crossed the finish line at Kaneohe Bay in just twelve days and nine hours after leaving San Francisco, correcting out first among the sixty-two finishers!

This was Bob's third Pacific Cup, so he knows the drill. Water-Pik was well-prepared, with a stellar crew in John Dillow and Mel Morrison, an ample supply of crackers and peanut butter and Pop Tarts -- and a full set of Pineapple Sails, including three fast, well-behaved spinnakers.

Bob Nance chose Pineapple as much for the support of his sail-maker as for the performance of the sails. From sail selection to sail trim to sailing in general, you too can take advantage of the wisdom gained in our twenty-five years in sailmaking.
